I made an open segmented bowl jig, from ideas that I got on line. You can see the jig and the first bowl that I made with it (and the problems) at my web site http://dennyedwards.com.

I can’t tell what you made Denny. If you’re just posting a teaser, you may want to reconsider. If it’s just me, ignore this.

It would have been nice if you had posted the information here.

Click on his website: http://dennyedwards.com/

Then go to New Movies. He has 3 videos. Two of them explain everything.

Do we really want a web site full of links to projects on other web sites? Or, can we all just post our projects here?

The movies are long, and therefore contained in very large files. Links to those files are a much more efficient use of ‘net storage space than duplicating them here, and it only takes a couple of clicks to access them.

As to the jig itself, the design and construction process was very interesting, but when it came to its application, all I can say is edwardsx obviously has much, much, more patience than me, but the end result justified his care and application.

First, I would like to say I love your web site and I am sorry if I am offending anyone. I have no idea how I would go about explaining some of the things I do in words and just pictures. I make these movies to try and make things as clear as I can, but with each video I still get anywhere from 10 to 50 questions. The videos on how I make a sled, and the jig I use to make economy bowls came about because I was over whelmed with questions that I could not answer with words and pictures. I sell nothing from my site and there is no advertising. I pay for the server and the bandwidth used. I thought I was helping, but if you prefer that I post no links to my site, I will not do it again.
Sorry
Dennis

Since I’m in charge here (haha). I suggest you do what most people do. Post words and pictures along with the link. Get used to the questions. They happen because people can see you have something to share and are willing to do the sharing. Thanks for understanding.

Best,

Thanks for posting…and your videos are exactly what I need. The detail is exactly what I need. Your followup and explanation are perfect.

Thanks truly.

I watched your videos. I tip my hat off to you. That is a lot of work that goes into one bowl. I enjoyed the fact that you experiment with different things to achieve different designs. I found it very interesting. My girlfriend saw your bowls and that opened up a can of worms. Now she wants a 5 piece salad bowl set. You have been doing this for awhile. I have no idea where to start. I guess I will start with making some jigs and buying some face plates. She couldn’t have just started with a simple bowl. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

-- Have a great day.

Have your say...
